This collection of fourteen essays by scholars of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam explores the nature of exegesis during the High and Late Middle Ages (11th to the 15th Centuries) as a discourse of cross-cultural and inter-religious conflict, paying attention to the commentaries of scholars in the Western and Southern Mediterranean.
